Experience the absolute cutting edge in symphonic music as electronica composer and DJ Mason Bates joins forces with Michael Tilson Thomas, the San Francisco Symphony and pianist Leif Ove Andsnes for the return of last season's mega-successful Beethoven & Bates series. The evening kicks off with Rossini's Overture to _La gazza ladra,_ with its snappy snare drums, while the finale features acclaimed Norwegian soloist Andsnes on Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1. In between, Bates, a Guggenheim Fellow and multiple composition prizewinner, joins the orchestra as they perform his Alternative Energy.

Great deal on the ticket price. The seats were nice and it wasn't a sold out performance so there was plenty of space to stretch out. There also was a free wine tasting event before the show so wish I had gotten there even earlier to enjoy that...continued

Beethoven: Symphony No. 8
At this concert, you’ll hear the conductor briefly share unique perspectives on the composer, the work, and its place in musical history. Experience two sides of Beethoven: the Classical symphonist and the passionate dramatist. The San Francisco Symphony presents Beethoven’s searing Overture to Coriolan and his tightly-wound Eighth Symphony. Violinist Vadim Repin will shine performing Sibelius’s Violin Concerto, a virtuosic masterpiece.
Meet Vadim Repin at an exclusive CD signing immediately following the concert at the Symphony Store in the lobby.
